Christian Music News, New Christian Music News It is proving to be a hot summer for Reunion Records/Sony Music Entertainment artist Tauren Wells thanks to the digital release of his debut solo LP, Hills and Valleys, on June 23. The album made a successful first-week appearance on the SoundScan Christian/Gospel Digital Albums chart at No. 3, while the title track is the third most-streamed and most-downloaded song in Christian music. The physical CD will be available at retail outlets beginning July 21.

The digital-only deluxe version features 15 songs, including the top-selling title track, which continues to climb the radio charts. Media critics are praising the album with coverage in outlets such as Rated R&B, EUR Web, New Release Today, Parle Magazine, Black America Web, CCM Magazine and Faith Radio Network. CCM Magazine recently stated that the album is "so contagious that the groove-saturated tunes stick within a listen or two, but its themes of using faith to overcome obstacles and also celebrate victories is destined to meet listeners wherever they are at." Wells also recently appeared on "Great Day Houston" performing the title track. 

Tauren Wells' summer will continue with him opening for Lionel Richie's 22-city "All The Hits Tour" also featuring Mariah Carey kicking off this month on July 21 in Oakland, CA running through September 5 in Seattle, WA.
